[applause] i have a bad reputation of being straight and telling you what i think. sometimes all of what i think. all kidding aside, in taking paul ryan, what gov. romney did is he has given clear definition to all of those vague assertions he was making during his primary campaign. he talked a lot about a lot of the things paul ryan is talking about, but never in any detail. by laying out why he was picking paul ryan, he picked paul ryan because paul bryant represents the ideological -- the center of the republican party. host: the vice president yesterday. the question is, arthur party is still relevant? when the walker has this-- wendy walker

joe biden paul ryan and the republican party in general. it is well known romney's favorability numbers are lower than the president's many believe romney, mega-rich businessman, who once tied the family dog to the roof of his car, doesn't seem able to connect with a lot of ordinary voters out will but less popular than george w. bush, that's cold. for start i, romney and his campaign have done everything in their power to make americans forget about george w. bush in his eight years as president. romney avoids mentioning the form president's name. bush was nowhere to be seen at the republican convention in tampa. that's because for a lot of americans, bush's presidency brings back bad memories of the war in iraq, afghanistan, and the dismal response to the federal government to hurricane katrina, and the conditions that allowed the financial crisis of 2008 to happen, on and on. it is a long list. a few months ago, a cnn poll found bush is the least popular living ex-president. somehow he still gets better favorable ratings than the republican that wants to be our next president

as biden and lugar and carry and richard holbrooke and hillary clinton, there is this effort to sycamore regard to break out of this narrative. were going to break out of this seeming straitjacket of the up and down of the relationship. regard to put our money where our mouth this. we measure things. the tool we use to try to show the we are serious. and that money was the legislation which promised seven a half billion dollars in civilian aid of the five years at the beginning of the obama administration. if i understand correctly touch and projectiles at the time the amount but if i understand this correctly this was a deeply idealistic effort to try to say we are not only going to give money, were not only going to have an impact with a fairly large civilian assistance program to balance, if you will, are ongoing military commitment to pakistan, but we're also going to set up a structure or relationship through what was generally called a strategic partnerships to try to make -- to break out of that pattern. after 2008-9, those of you who knew richard holbrooke knew that the hurricane

in the military. he is out there for his own agenda. vice-president biden has one son that is patriotic to our country. host: how about a final thought from you in a broad sense about campaign 2012 that foreign policy would plaly. guest: governor romney is a patriotic american and wants to contribute. i think he is having a problem in the campaign. foreign policy is becoming a bigger issue because of these terrible events in the middle east. both candidates want to sanction china because of the threat of war. i think president obama has the advantage going into the debate. the present's record is very solid -- the president's record is very solid. mitt romney has to develop some well considered ideas -- here's what i would do on the big issues. how we can stop iran from becoming a nuclear weapons power. how do we bring peace to the palestinians? that is a debate we should have. it should not be partisan. i am looking for to the debates. host: nicholas burns, former u.s. ambassador and now teaching at the harvard. thank you for joining us this morning. guest: thank you very much. host: we will

gore or joe biden have charitable contributions of $350 per year. i would not think you could argue that mitt romney has gotten p too muchuffy press. i think his interview on "six"the minutes was pretty good. they ask what your idea of leadership was in that as a nice generic question. i need spirit -- i think there needs to be substantive questions as well. host: i want to make sure that the folks see this a -- in "the washington post" last wemple reported thisric -- guest: there is a danger in a candidate talking about the media bias. the media of will turn around and say you are losing. this is a lot of what we have seen in the last couple of weeks. there was an associated press report that said romney is struggling to exert his influence in the poll. you don't want to get across the idea of losing but this is what happens. the media runs with a poll they are taking and they treat the race like it is over. we are in september. that's what i don't like. people should let this election process conclude before they say is so host: over. next up is silver spring, maryland, go ahead.

's out there for his own agenda. like vice president biden, he had a least one on this pastry out of country. i don't think it's it's out for the people's interests. >> host: final word from the caller there. in the campaign role of 2012, what will the role-play? >> guest: i guess that would mean to the motives of governor romney running for president. as a pastry addict american who has to contribute and has a sense of ideas that can contribute. however, i think he's having a problem. foreign policy is becoming a much bigger issue than anybody expected because of these terrible events in the middle east, because both candidates are attacking china and wanted to sanction china because of a threat of war between israel and iran. i think president obama has got the natural advantage going into the debate. the president's record is very solid. he's been a good president on foreign policy and governor romney's challenge now is to get beyond the slow dance in the 119 see in the campaign trail and develop some well considered idea to explain, okay, here's what i i would do differently.

to be drawing for the next four years? politics aside. romney/ryan or four more years of obama/biden? >> romney is much funnier. and a robotic sense, he is great. >> i would said my job aside and prefer to have the country recover. i am hoping for a regime change. it is obviously -- cartoonists are in a position of where what is best for them is not necessarily best for the country. i think is all too important this time. that is why i want mitt romney. >> i agree with steve. from a philosophical point of view as an american, i would like mitt romney to win. as a conservative cartoonist, it is always easier to go after the guy you disagree with. >> in the you have any past people who are your favorites to drop? >> anytime somebody has a reputation for salacious behavior, it makes them rich targets for us. the bill clinton years were -- i got out of the office very early every day. that was back when i had a sick handicapped by the way. >> george w. bush was fun for me. he is great to drop. as the term progressed, i disagree with them on many more things. if you are a conservative and you have a
